“I acquire general interest and academic books across a wide range of history. I look for works with broad appeal and original arguments, books that engage readers eager to learn about the past and that advance scholarship in the academic community. One of the joys of working on history books is having a passionate audience; history readers revel in new information, new ideas, new perspectives. I have been one of those readers my entire life, and I want the books I publish to be part of the discussions and debates in that lively world. Among the many fields I cover are American history of any period; environmental history; Atlantic history; medieval to modern European history, including eastern Europe and Russia; military history, the modern Middle East; Asian history; and Latin American history. I am particularly interested in books that cross borders and consider global contexts.”
